The coordinating voice for Black, Asian, Mixed Race and Minority Ethnic transplant donation

NHSBT Community Investment Scheme Year Progress Report

Organisations representing a diverse range of faiths and communities in England and Wales joined a campaign to address the urgent need for black, Asian and minority ethnic organ donors.

Over 200 events were carried out to raise awareness from 25 projects which all aimed to encourage people from these backgrounds to become lifesaving organ donors. This was as a result of securing funding after bidding for a share of a £140,000* Community Investment Scheme funding pot.

The scheme is part of a Government campaign led by NHS Blood and Transplant, with support from the National BAME Transplant Alliance (NBTA), to break down myths and barriers and increase support for organ donation among black, Asian and minority ethnic communities.
